Dawn and Whitney talk to Albert (while Cochran lurks creepily). Dawn and Whitney quickly lay out their case: Coach is going to take Edna and Sophie to the finals, and now is the time to make a move to prevent that from happening. Albert interviews that he knows that he needs all the Savaii jury votes if he wants to win. His big idea is getting rid of Edna. He thinks that will make Cochran happy, because he will move up the ladder one spot, and it will make Whitney and Dawn happy, because they won't go home. He knows he will lose Edna's vote, but she wouldn't vote for him anyway. I'm guessing he thinks he'll go to the finals with Coach and one other person, so he doesn't need to worry about losing Coach's vote. He would probably also lose Brandon's vote too, since we know how Brandon feels about loyalty. No one else seems crazy about Edna though, since they almost voted her out instead of Mikayla a few weeks ago. Basically, Albert is looking for the Upolu member he can vote out and cause the least blowback, I guess. So it's really a medium move, not a big move. A big move would be voting Coach out, and I don't know why that's not even on the table. Coach still has the Hidden Immunity Idol, but if they blindside him, it won't matter.
Albert lays out his reasons for voting out Edna to Whitney, who totally doesn't care, since all she wants to hear is that it's anyone but her. Albert's plan is to have Dawn, Whitney, Cochran, himself, and one other person vote out Edna. As Albert confabs with Whitney, Brandon asks Coach what's up with Albert doing so much consorting with the enemy. Coach has no response, but he definitely looks worried. Coach is no Boston Rob. He needs a buddy system like BRob instituted.
Cochran and Albert play checkers on a homemade checker board. Not sure if that was won in a reward challenge or if they made it themselves, though I'm not sure where they got the paint if it's the latter. Albert tells Cochran that the current plan is to vote Cochran out seventh, i.e. as soon as they get rid of the remaining Savaii, Cochran will be next to go. Albert goes on to tell Cochran that they do have a move available to them, but it's a big risk and a gamble.
